    Sometimes someone does something so very odd that it makes you wonder why. This kid is fantastic. Music is the best.

    That is too cool. Some very talented people out there. I love it when FZ music is played on different instruments than the original renditions. Never would have considered the recorder, but dang, it works!

    I think FZ’s music has always been about the notes, not the particular instruments which play those notes, which is why so many different musicians, from so many diverse cultures can come together and bring those notes to life. Speaking of instruments one never thought could carry large pieces of a Zappa composition, how about the Harmonica? (Twenty Small Cigars by The Zappa Corner Band, Umea International Chambermusic Festival, Umea, Sweden, 14 Jun 2003).

    LOL ! I bought a flute a few weeks ago and the first thing I did was precisely to try to learn how to play the Black Page #2. However I had to stop at some point, not only because I am a very bad player but also because these notes are too sharp and loud for my neighborhood :-/

    I’ve been known to play The Black Page #1 to my son using nothing but the sound of me pounding on my belly. Kid loves it! :)

    When my son was an infant, I used to play The Black Page #1 on my cheeks (this would really crack him up as I would have to make several strange faces in order to achieve some of the more difficult notes). As he got older, his demands for bedtime music got increasingly challenging, too. The Black Page #2. By the time my son fell asleep, I was exhausted.

    I plan to fart on my kids and tell them that it’s the Big Note.

    I loved it, too! Especially their live version. Thanks for the tip, Balint!

    Years ago, I saw seven french jazzmen playing SOFA on recorders, from the Bass one to the sopranino, great!
